The Boston Zine Fair is happening on September 20th-21st at the Art Institute of Boston (601 Newbury Street – near Kenmore Square). I have to work that weekend so I won’t be there. However, Rezra will be because Ren agreed to man the table by himself. If you’re in the area you should check out the zine fair and pick up a copy of Rezra.
A lot of stuff has happened since my last post. I’ve been so busy I haven’t had any time to post in here. I’m not going to give a full update on my life, but I will share the most important news. Ren and I are engaged! How did it happen, you ask?
Well, we were in Rockport, MA sitting on a big rock eating pizza and talking about the litter and how fucked up it was that people are destroying the world and ways we could be more eco-friendly. The area was full of tourists – there was even a man playing the accordion for tips. Then the sun started setting but there were clouds in front of it. I expressed disappointment about the lack of sunset so Ren said “I think I know something that will make it better. Will you marry me?” and he whipped out a cute but hilarious cupcake-frosting-pink pinkey-finger ring (the real ring was delayed due to the construction on our street). I was too shocked to respond. Instead I started laughing and crying at the same time and then we started kissing. We were instantly interrupted by an old man yelling “Get a room!” He was countered by another old man who yelled back “Leave ’em alone! They’re happy!” so he turned away disgustedly, mumbling something about fags. After a few minutes, Ren said “Was that a yes?” and I realized I hadn’t actually accepted the proposal. Whoops! So I accepted and we hugged again and decided to head home so we wouldn’t scandalize the homophobes.
